Tilda in the Garden

Hi Everyone!!

Another day and another card... I'm doing well!! I decided to use this pretty Tilda image today... I got the colour inspiration from the brown paper and scrap of green paper that I had in my scraps. I love kraft card but it can be expensive... on this card I have used parcel wrap which I got from Poundstretcher... it was a big roll for £1.49 and will last me forever I think!! The outer side is shiny so I use the reverse which has a rougher feel...

Again I have coloured using ProMarkers and pencils and I've used loads of flowers and gems stuck on using flowersoft glue (my favourite glue ever!) The little green ladybug has been in my stash forever so I am so pleased to finally get to use him!

Tomorrow I have a packed day planned... first I am visiting my mum, then I'll be popping into Dylan's school to join in with his 'activities' day... and then we are going to our workplace to spend our Christmas vouchers... Myself and Mr Becky both work in a wholesale food warehouse (supplying corner shops etc) and we have £200 to spend so we will be in our element! Dylan especially has been looking forward to this day and says he would like some cup drinks, crisps and jelly sweets!! And then we will get back with all our goodies and he will play 'shop' for the next few weeks lol!!

Love Becky xx

Hi Becky. Such a pretty card, and lovely to see some gorgeous colours again. Love the brown paper and green to match it, brilliant idea, and it is so effective too. Tilda looks great and the whole card is very sweet. I love it.
Have fun shopping. Happy crafting.
